Obituary for Leo Repeta

January 10, 1926 - July 5, 2017
Munroe Falls, Ohio | Age 91

Loving Husband, Father, Grandfather


Leo Anthony Repeta, age 91, passed away on Wednesday, July 5th, 2017. He was born on January 10th, 1926 in Cleveland Ohio. After serving his country in the Army during WWII he worked for the Cleveland Plain Dealer as district manager for 34 years until retiring at age of 64.
Leo loved being outside tinkering in his yard back in Avon Ohio. He was always surrounded by adoring family pets or feeding ducks that have come to find their home in his pond. Spending time with his family was most important to him. Vacations, picnics, Indians games and gatherings were a regular staple in raising his family. He equally cherished his role as a loving grandfather.
His last eight years were spent at Mulberry Gardens with his loving wife Mary Ann. There he was cared for by the wonderful aids and nurses who became their extended family. His last few months he was tenderly prepared for his journey back home to God by the Ohio Living Hospice who were his angels on earth.
Leo was preceded in death by his father, Alex Repeta; mother, Sophie Repeta (Szwirko) and sister Rose Karecki (Jerry). He is survived by his devoted wife of 67 years Mary Ann.
Beloved Father of Ken Repeta (Beth), Karen Russell (Tim), Kevin Repeta (Carol), Kathy Battaglia (Joe), Kris Sokol (Joe) and Kelly Yanda (Charlie).
Cherished Grandfather of Stacy (Mike), Nikki (Dan), JoJo, Krissy, Mikey, Matthew, Gregory, Natalie and Cruz.
